Our Opinion: Sevigny’s vision will be missed

Maurice J. Sevigny

These are exceptionally difficult times for the University of Arizona, and Maurice J. Sevigny is one of the victims.

Sevigny, dean of the College of Fine Arts for 18 years, recently told his faculty he will retire in June.

“In this lousy economy, it’s not as much fun,” he said.

Under Sevigny, UA has developed a nationally recognized college with five distinctive schools – art, music, dance, theater arts and media arts – that draw students from across the country. Admission to the college is extremely competitive.

Tough economic times are difficult, and it is understandable that after four decades in higher education, Sevigny doesn’t want to fight new battles.

But UA will deeply miss his vision and his leadership.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
